quote the obama administration has characterized him. >> when they say i don't know what i'm talking about, i say it's somewhat misleading. >> but the office of the director of national intelligence, james clapper, says nonsense. edward snowden was an i.t. contractor, not a covert intelligence officer like many of his previous public statements. many of the recent claims fall well short of the truth.
.gov web site crashed last fall, the obama administration scrambled to patch it together, duck tape it, put it all together, but according to the article behind the scenes, important aspects of the web site remain defective or simply unfinished. so the article goes on. "the government may be paying incorrect subsidies to more than one million americans for their health plans in the new federal insurance marketplace, and has been unable so far to fix the errors." this is according to internal il documents and three people familiar with the situation. the problem means potentially hundreds of thousands of people are receiving bigger subsidies than they deserve. so the government can't fix it. web site can't be fixed. what do they do? these people are sending in information, and according to this article, piles of unprocessed proof documents are sitting in a federal contractor's kentucky office, and the government continues to pay insurance subsidies maybe too generous. the inability to make certain the government is paying correct subsidies is a legacy of computer troubles that crippled last
religion. the obama administration and attorney general eric holder argue that hobby lobby is a for-profit secular employer and a second entity by definition is not exercisable religion reared a federal judge agrees. does he have the lobby is a secular corporation in which there are no right to be guided by the religious belief of their ownership. lobbyn mind that hobby was arguing that so-called morning-after pill should be illegal or banned for doing anything to prevent their employees from being the small cost of such bills. they just have a moral problem paying for something they view as inherently against the deeply held beliefs. the obama administration ignored these beliefs and treats them as little more than an inconvenience to their ever-expanding regulatory state. let's be clear that this is bigger than hobby lobby. the administration argument strikes at the core of our understanding of free exercise of religion. this could have enormous from vacations for religious business owners across the country. under the obama regime come you the protection of the worst youdment as
in the house have aggressively investigated what happened that night in benghazi and the obama administration preparedness and response to those terror attacks. unfortunately, the white house is engaged in a pattern of obstruction consistently ignoring subpoenas, redacting relevant information and stonewalling investigators. this obstruction gives cause to the grave concerns expressed by countless americans across the country. mr. speaker, what's worse, as the white house refuses to turn over documents, they go in front of the american people and claim to be transparent. those in the administration claim to be cooperating. they claim to be focused on bringing the perpetrators of this attack to justice. attacks in the benghazi for the first time an american ambassador was killed in the line of duty since the 1970's. and to this day, not a single perpetrator of the attacks has been arrested or brought to justice. we should be using every tool necessary to find those responsible and bring them to justice. after ignoring for nearly a year a lawful congressional subpoena, the white house, under c
about the obama administration's blatant disregard of its constitutional obligations, and, in particular, about how the ideological devotion and political expediency have again and again trumped the president's sworn duty to uphold the law. in the short time since then, the white house has provided yet another egregious example of itsliness to disregard clear legal object -- its willingness to disregard clear legal obligations in clear favor of playing partisan politics. just days ago we heard that the obama administration withheld particularly significant information from disclosure to congress despite a lawfully issued subpoena during a house committee's investigation of the september 11, 2012, terrorist attack on the u.s. mission in benghazi, libya. one of these documents, an e-mail from a senior white house official, casts serious doubt on a number of the administration's key assertions about the explanations it offered congress and the american people regarding the cause and nature of those attacks. madam president, there are many important questions about benghazi to which the amer
, lou. lou: obama administration broke silence in case of marine imprisoned in mexico on gun charges, the 25-year-old jailed inty one amexico -- tijuana, mexico since march 21, said he made a wrong turn at a crossing. and state department today confirms that secretary of state john kerry, raised the issue during meetings this week in mexico city but the secretary and obama administration are criticized for not, not more internetically insist -- energeticly insisting he be freed. one of the conservative groups, targeted by internal revenue service is now offering a bounty for someone that leads to -- targets scandal, kathrine, wants to open power the american people to hole government accountable. that might do the trick. we're coming right back. >> is hillary clinton afraid? there are reports that say that clinton apparatus forced nancy pelosi to name members of the benghazi committee. mine was earned in korea in 1953. afghanistan, in 2009. orbiting the moon in 1971.

!,, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. the obama administration has launched a review of execution procedures following last weeks botched killing of a death row prisoner in oklahoma. clayton lockett died of a heart attack warty three minutes after he was injected with untested chemicals in his growing. -- groin. prison officials had called off the execution after he remained conscious and convulsed on the gurney. president obama called the botched execution deeply disturbing and said it raises difficult and profound questions. >> in the application of the death penalty in this country, we have seen significant , and evenracial bias application of the death penalty -- uneven application of the death penalty. there were situations or individuals on death row later on were discovered to have been innocent because of exculpatory evidence. in all of these, i think it raises significant questions about how the death penalty is being applied. i will be discussing with eric , you know, toers get me an analysis of what steps have been taken, not just in this particular instanc
in the middle of a recession. none of this it to the obama administration. they say that fateful business owners cannot operate under the assumption in which they can use their moral principles to guide the way their places of business spend money. according to administration legal argument, the family that owns hobby lobby is not protected by the first amendments are free use of exercise. that is part of the amendment tested congress will make no law prohibiting the free exercise religion. the obama administration and attorney general eric holder argue that hobby lobby is a for-profit secular employer and a second entity by definition is not exercisable religion reared a federal judge agrees. does he have the lobby is a secular corporation in which there are no right to be guided by the religious belief of their ownership. keep in mind that hobby lobby was arguing that so-called morning-after pill should be illegal or banned for doing anything to prevent their employees from being the small cost of such bills. they just have a moral problem paying for something they view as inherently against t
in the transition from the bush administration to the obama administration, which meant that the new leadership in the va, secretary eric shinseki and his leader had to be him made aware of something like that. here we are five years later dealing with the same issue and we haven't asked the problem since then and that is a damning issue and i think we are on a collision course with a major roof on an overhaul f the va. ashley: and must be particularly galling with the detainees in guantÁnamo bay. they have much superior health care and the ratio between doctors and those that need help, far better than it is for our veterans and not as outrageous as well. >> yes, but it gives us a bit of a false issue. we have a small population of detainees down there. and we want to make certain that the care is what it should be. i've been there three times but i haven't been there recently. i really can't make a judgment about whether we've overcome it or not. we've overcome a number of things to ensure that there are problems in getting inspected by the red cross, so i'm not as convinced that it's reall
, the debate on how to seek justice in these cases is quietlying put to rest. in 2009, the obama administration said that it would seek for all of those top masterminds at guantanamo way, lug shake mohammed. moving them to american soil could be a security threat n2009 and 2010, congress voted down bills that would have funded closing the base. >> the unwise and unwarranted restrictions undermine our counter terrorism efforts, and could harm our national security. >> instead, the top al qaeda suspects are still in prison in guantanamo, and stuck in the process of military tribune falls. under the bush administration's plan, there are legalities, defendants have attorney and get access it them. but it's not private. the suspects cannot know all of the evidence against them, and the conditions or time in custody bear no weight. the president has tried to make good on closing gitmo, but it centers on capitol hill. if detainees were to be transferred to the united states, they would not require new legal protections, such as the right to seek asylum. >> john walker lynn, jose padilla, richard reed,
're all here. what they're doing at the obama administration health care department and i don't think they know anything, i think they're in a state of total confusion. to give them credit for a plan that is subtle is trying to make this complicated plan and to give them much, too much credit for planning. >> but i believe those single women knew exactly why they were there. >> well, they didn't answer me anyway. probably thinking, go away you old -- >> hardly. adam, what do you think of this program that you were looking forward to and then woke up hollering and shouting and it arrived and now it's falling apart. >> well, all very accurate except that it's not falling apart. the exchanges or the websites and some of the states aren't working as well as they need to. these are the states, by the way, that went along with the way that the legislation was written. i mean, look, i agree that there are people within the democratic party who wanted single payer, but, that is sort of a fact. but that's not how the legislation was written. that's not the legislation. >> adam, you have to rem
original anonymous question, i think you have to look at the overall trend in the obama administration when it comes to dealing with scandals to see why we're going to need a special prosecutor. they lied about obamacare. they never told the truth about benghazi. eric holder was held in contempt about fast and furious in mexico. so you have all of these things. they're never going to tell the truth. it's not in their dna. you're going to need a special prosecutor to get to the bottom of this. >> well, rich, we do have press conferences which white house officials including the president himself are asked whether or not this just came out from cincinnati or whether anybody outside of cincinnati was involved. the next time they're asked that question with all of this evidence piled up, how can they still pin it on cincinnati? >> well, i'm afraid what you're going to get is what you got in benghazi where a white house smo spokesman says dude that was two years ago. this rises to a scandal that exceeds anything nixon has done. when you have lois lernor targeting debt or spending or the course o

. the school of less rules the obama administration. the debate in a late retrenchment period, we're getting into not late retrenchment, but into the middle phase, the middle passage of retrenchment, the debate that tends to arise is are we doing enough, can we do more, or do we need to stick with less? we're going to have that debate for years now, and it will shape the kind of role that the united states takes in the world. it will involve a lot of complexity and subtlety. but a lot of it will just be reducible to more versus less. >> actually i'm very grateful for your earlier question, because it kind of relates to what i was going to ask. >> i've got to answer it again? >> no, i will be asking a new answer to the question. your characterization of the bush sr. administration as the school of less and the late clinton administration as the school of more in broad term, that's something that's being popularly disputed with the downfall in crimea. there are all these articles apportioning the blame to the u.s. for everything that's happened in somalia, in haiti, in bosnia and kosovo includ

of the obama administration for a while now. the president set the redline in syria for instance and nothing happen. >> there are separate issues. how they are communicating the message and the substance of the foreign policy. on the communication aspect. i don't think anybody thinks that the obama administration really thinks that sending out a tweet save our girls is going to rescue the girls. it is awareness. and it is a way to convoy thoughts in the twitter age these days. and that is one issue. i don't know if you can completely criticize them for using the twitter venue to do. that in contrast to the redline in syria and investigations in benghazi. there is appropriateness of when they do it and when they are taken seriously. >> i don't so teddy roosevelt saying speak softly and carry a big hash tag. the idea of applying pressure to nigeria government and boko haran and others tens of thousands of people to tweet, what does it accomplish? >> it gets media attention and reporters, a lot of them spend their day on twitter and gets them interested and engaged. i don't think it is going to
